Congratulations, Mary. It’s a Messiah

My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. Luke 1:46

Certainly being chosen to be Jesus’ mother was an honor,  but when Mary uttered this song of praise the task was taking its toll on Mary’s relationship with her fiance and her standing in her community. Like Mary we can choose to embrace the absolute wonder of being chosen to participate in whatever God is doing or we can focus on the inconvenience. God still chooses to use individuals like each of us to bear His Son into the world He loves.

My soul magnifies the Lord!
